2. Stripping a '90 Plymouth Laser Turbo FWD

Bought the engine donor from ebay for $1000 before I realized I would end up making the Colt project AWD. I drove this car home and the ECU fried the next day, but the engine was in great shape. PA car, very rusty, this one took 4 hours because I took a dinner break.
